The KC Concepcion-Phil Younghusband Rumor is Only a Publicity Stunt?

KC Concepcion is clueless as to how rumors romantically linking him to Phil Younghusband started.

Concepcion explained that the only instance they ever spoke was during a televised interview more than a year ago.

The 28-year-old actress addressed the rumor in an interview with ABS-CBN News’ MJ Felipe, shortly after a press conference held Thursday for upcoming film, ‘Boy Golden: The Arturo Porcuna Story.

Honestly, ang tagal na niya na ring naririnig ito, Concepcion said, when asked to explain her supposed ties with Younghusband.

She does not want to comment because she is tired of the said tsismis, it has no source.

She continued, she does not know Phil personally and she meets him only once.

Concepcion was referring to the defunct ABS-CBN talk show ‘The Buzz,’ which she co-hosted from 2010 to 2011.

Younghusband’s girlfriend at the time was actress Angel Locsin, who confirmed her breakup with the football player in October this year.

Meanwhile, in denying rumors linking him to Concepcion last week, Younghusband similarly mentioned the interview, saying it was the only time he ever met the ‘Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala’ actress.

As to how the rumor about her and Younghusband surfaced, Concepcion mentioned the possibility of it being a supposed publicity stunt for Locsin’s upcoming series.

Angel is set to make her drama series comeback via ‘The Legal Wife,’ which also stars Maja Salvador, Jericho Rosales and JC de Vera.

Ang hindi alam ni KC kung part ‘to ng promo ng magiging teleserye ng ex-girlfriend niya, Concepcion said.

Pero sana naman, huwag na nila siya idawit or isama sa gano’n kasi may mga iba namang nangyayari sa buhay ni KC.

Parang hindi niya na kailangang bigyan pansin ‘yung ibang bagay na… Napaka-busy niya rin.

She has so many things to do, bakit siya tsinitsismis?

Concepcion clarified, however, that she bears no ill feelings toward Locsin or Younghusband.

She has nothing against him. Pero hindi ko siya… Pati si Angel, hindi naman sila magkaaway or close, so hindi ko alam kung saan nanggagaling.

Baka naman may mga tao sa paligid na gusto silang i-connect, o gusto silang sirain, or siraan, she added.

In a separate interview early this week, Younghusband was asked on the possibility of having a romantic relationship with Concepcion.

The Azkals striker brushed off the question, saying he is still in love with Locsin.
